..........cyclists get free use of roads ......
Have to call you out on that one. Roads are paid for from general taxation, so somebody who doesn't own a motor vehicle pays for the roads as surely as "Mr Toad" who moans about his car tax.

Well when I nip down shops by road its frse,and even Toad goes free -neither of us pay tax.
If you don't pay income tax, for whatever reason (although you will pay VAT) you do indeed get road usage free, along with many other things (NHS, police, refuse collection). I don't begrudge that: it is the deal we have in a civilised society.
